The extreme water filtration process known as reverse osmosis rids tap water of virtually all nasty toxins, contaminants and bacteria, making it as pure and crystal clear as can be.
Sounds great, right?
The problem with reverse osmosis (R/O) is that it works TOO well. In addition to removing all of the impurities, it also strips the water of all the valuable alkaline minerals your body needs to thrive. Essentially, R/O water is dead and lifeless, and most bottled waters on the market today are made with R/O water, not the pristine mountain spring water the ads may lead you to believe.
Although reverse osmosis water is very pure, you will never find it in nature. Water in nature always has total dissolved solids (TDS) in it. TDS are dissolved substances or minerals found in natural waters, which are what give the water life and help to nourish our bodies.
Due to the removal of alkaline minerals, R/O water has an acidic pH level instead of a neutral or alkaline pH which municipal tap water sources mandate. It also has a positive oxidation reduction potential (or +ORP) value, which means it is oxidizing to the body and creates cell-damaging free radicals.
When we consume acidic foods and liquids, our bodies are forced to rob themselves of alkaline minerals like calcium from our bones and magnesium from our heart to offset the unnatural imbalance, creating a mineral deficiency!
Over time, this continuous act of robbing Peter to pay Paul can take a real toll on our health. It’s no wonder that heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer, vision loss and other lifestyle-related diseases are rampant in our society today–most of us are drinking the wrong kind of water!
R/O systems waste approximately five gallons of water per gallon made, and that’s not including the water and oil needed to create the plastic bottles they often come in! With many scholars predicting a water and oil crisis in the not-so-distant future, it’s important to be water wise now more than ever.
A Better Drinking Water Solution
Alkaline ionized water from a Chanson water ionizer is full of bioavailable minerals, has an alkaline pH and an energizing, free-radical fighting -ORP. Chanson ionizers duplicate what happens in nature when water runs over rocks through electrolysis, separating alkaline and acidic ions so the remaining drinking water is healthy, mineral-rich and closer to what nature intended.
Water ionizers hook directly up to your tap, providing an on-demand water supply that is much cheaper, more convenient and better for the environment than bottled or homemade R/O water in the long run.
Because the onboard filter(s) that all brands of water ionizers come with provide a level of filtration far inferior to R/O systems, we strongly recommend pairing a drinking water pre-filter with your water ionizer. Or, if you already have a R/O system installed you can add a remineralizer in order for the ionizer to have minerals to ionize.
You will not get the same benefits from remineralized R/O water or a bottle of mineral water as you will from filtered water run through a water ionizer. This is because the minerals have not been ionized which makes them better absorbed by the body, nor has it been microclustered, which Japanese scientists believe makes it up to six times more hydrating and detoxifying. And finally because it has not been given a negative charge which helps fight free radicals instead of creating them.
Properly filtered alkaline ionized water from a Chanson water ionizer is the solution. Stop drinking dead, acidic, mineral-leeching R/O water today. Visit us at www.chansonwater.com for more information.
